And my daughter's best friend in HS is at Northwestern - oh how I'd love for my dd17 to go there for her vocal passion! We toured the university when we traveled to Chicago 5 years ago but no way could we afford that, they have their college paid as long as it's a Florida school unless she scholarships like crazy - LOL.

Kel, LOL on the spelling the name wrong - I get all kinds, including your Kelli! Or Kelley. Or Kellye. That one was my favorite.

Off to take dd to her tutoring - she tutors for her NHS hours and then we're off to find an audition dress.

Can you believe all the Christmas that it out already!!!!!!!!!!!!! I passed a pumpkin stand on the way home and all the stores have holiday trees, ornaments, lights and more! WOW!
Wait a minute! I never mentioned wearing a bikini - that was ALL Lynn! LOL!

Yes, and I'm just not ready for the Christmas deco yet! Let's at least get Halloween over with first.

I hope not because I haven't uploaded anything in a really long time. I'm a Fan Club member though so I don't think they would cut me off because then I would cut them off.

My Saturday was pretty quiet. First thing was taking all the fur babies back to the vet for their second ear mite treatment. It was a little easier getting them into crates this time, but I also had to trap Maggie Mae. She knew what was coming and was not at all happy the last time. But we managed. They were all looking better except when the vet was examining Casper, she found a flea on him!!!!!!!! Yikes! I don't know where that came from. But now the more I think about it, I really think he got it at the vet's office. The carrier's were sitting on the floor and could very well have been a flea from some other cat that had visited there that day jumped into his carrier. I haven't had fleas at my house in over 5 years or more since I had my floors done. The only way they could get in my house would be for one to come in on my clothes, but it would be weird for only 1 to get in my house and get on Casper. That prompted giving them all some Advantage to kill fleas. They got the vaccinations that they needed and now have to go back in 2 more weeks for their last ear mite treatment.

Good morning, Fall ladies!

Maggie, that happened to us at the vet, too. We have our dogs on Comfortix and they have NEVER EVER had a flea or tick while on it. Low and behold, we get to the vet and as soon as Buddy was on the exam table, one goes PING! right onto the vet. He gives us a look and a speech about fleas, lol. I'm like LOOK .... that's not ours! I swear, officer! We had one jump on my daughter's arm in the waiting room, so we were convinced it hitch hiked home

GONNA BE A LONG DAY!!!! Today starts Opera at the high school, 4 performances - my daughters are going to be exhausted by Halloween (dd17 is a lead and dd5 is in the chorus)/ My son also has his awards presentation at Cub Scouts tonight after school and after drama club.

ME? I got to wait in line at the S'Bux drive through for 23 minutes! NICE! I know I Needed it. I know I love it! I know I'm enjoying it! But that was a LONG wait ~ I don't know if it was persistence or ignorance, ROFL!!

LOL! look at it this way, Starbucks not only provides your refreshing drink of the morning, but also the opportunity to sit still for 23 minutes.

Hi girls - I am with DD and family in the chaos of their move....... don't know that I'll get here often, but it was good to see you this morning, albeit briefly.

Yes, Kelly, you did need the time out in the S'buks line Good to see you had a break.

Hope I will be able to do some blog hopping this week.

Trying to type this with two little people bouncing on the bed - it is early morning here and I thought I would get a little bit of time to chat......... yeah right

people always come springtime and say itʻs not what they expected... for us the hot, hawaiian summer season is really mid/late may thru october. thatʻs when itʻs hot and sticky and perfect beach weather. end october/november is when the weather starts to cool down and the rains come.

Kel- I need your mailing address, your B-day and your e-mail for a list we re putting together.....

And Kristie has asked to rejoin us : )

And, I tried to communicate with Nancy, but she has not answered me. Hoping she is OK : )

Ahhhh I am smashed today- I have not accomplished much- went and tutored all AM, and got back ~ noon. Walked the dog, and did some blog hopping- DT blogs- will get by to visit ya'll later : ) Made ribs for dinner- hubby was happy to have a nice meal on the table.

We are heading to Ky this week on Friday, so I am trying to get things done so I do not have to bring stamping supplies with me- we'll see how that goes. We cannot get a hotel in Lexington anywhere around where Stephi is running, so we are going to stay near Cinci at my parents home, and get up and drive Sat AM to Lexington.

Kel-we were in Hawaii at the end of Feb- it was perfect- LOVED it. I bet it is nothing like the Hawaii we visited- 27 yrs ago!

Maxine- Hang in there!

Jeanette- hope you had a fab weekend- and sounds like the next weekend will be awesome as well : )

Kelly- 23 minutes for coffee- OK- so it must be some really good stuff! Is it just as long if you go inside to order it? So fun for you to have active kids- sounds like the Opera is going to be outstanding- will you attend all 4 shows?

Oh dear me, Maggie- do you remember a summer ago when Peanut got Fleas somewhere- infested with them...and we could not get rid of them for a LONG time? It was awful! We did not know if they were from the yard, the forest preserve, or where...... Luckily, they did not reappear this summer- thankfully. I never thought of the possibility they could come from the vet- I was thinking the groomer possibly. I can only imagine you caging all of the kitties.

Lynn- I did stop by your blog- and it let me click on comment for the first post and I wrote something - then it went poof- and would not let me click on comment for any of the other posts.....

Waving hi to all

Shelly

Hi ladies!
I am happy to be back, have been missing the chatting! Life has been very rough and I've not been super creative...hoping to get some cards done in the next few days though since Halloween is Friday and my sister & BIL's 10th anniversary is also Friday.

I know it's a lot to ask since I'm just rejoining but could you all add my family to your prayers? My Mom was diagnosed with breast cancer on September 29th. She is having a lumpectomy this Friday and she will get the pathology reports on the 12th to determine if she needs radiation. Her doctor said it was caught very early and that it is a very treatable and curable...but we are all nervous and anxious. She asked him about going to Disney still and he said to GO and if she needs radiation, it can wait until we get back. I am nervous about her recovery from the surgery though since the biopsy was very rough on it. They hit a blood vessel and she had a hematoma which is why surgery was put off for several weeks.

I hope you are all doing well. I have been trying to keep up with some of your blogs during my absence but need to get you all listed back on my blog page again.

I see Kel is here now too - hi!

Whew! Sounds like everyone is super busy around here - either welcoming new family (or fleas! LOL!) or sitting in line at Starbucks!

I was out of town all day yesterday. Left at 8:00 in the morning and got home at 7:00. A LONG DAY! Yep, I was playing cowboy all day again. Too long a drive and too much to do.

Don't have any idea what could have happened on the commenting Shelly. I'm still trying to catch up on mine from yesterday. Right now I think maybe I just need a nap!

Thank you, Barb! I think the recovery time is going to be hard on her. She is very active with her job and around the house. It's going to drive her crazy to take it easy. I'm hoping she will learn to enjoy the downtime and craft or something (she likes to make things with Perler beads).

Low and behold, we get to the vet and as soon as Buddy was on the exam table, one goes PING! right onto the vet. He gives us a look and a speech about fleas, lol. I'm like LOOK .... that's not ours! I swear, officer! We had one jump on my daughter's arm in the waiting room, so we were convinced it hitch hiked home

GONNA BE A LONG DAY!!!! Today starts Opera at the high school, 4 performances - my daughters are going to be exhausted by Halloween (dd17 is a lead and dd5 is in the chorus)/ My son also has his awards presentation at Cub Scouts tonight after school and after drama club.

ME? I got to wait in line at the S'Bux drive through for 23 minutes! NICE! I know I Needed it. I know I love it! I know I'm enjoying it! But that was a LONG wait ~ I don't know if it was persistence or ignorance, ROFL!!

Good luck to the DD's on the Opera performance! I'm sure it's just one of many long days. What awards is DS getting?

I talked to my DD in CA last night. My DGD is working on audition tapes. She has to have monologues, dancing, and singing for her applications to the colleges. She said she is applying to 9 and has actually already been accepted at the U of Colorado for academics with a scholarship, but has not yet applied for or been accepted to the Music Theater program. The man who is in charge is someone that either they know or is good friends with someone they know, so they are hoping that could be a foot in the door there if she decides to go. She's a great student and has a high GPA.

Yes, Kelly, you did need the time out in the S'buks line Good to see you had a break.

Hope I will be able to do some blog hopping this week.

Trying to type this with two little people bouncing on the bed - it is early morning here and I thought I would get a little bit of time to chat......... yeah right
LOL! Oh Maxine, it's going to be a challenge, I can see that. Are they actually at your house now? Enjoy them while you can.

Ah, so you are at their house packing up to move to your house! I hope it all goes smoothly and you'll have a safe trip. How long is the drive from there to your house? I guess you have 2 cars at least - theirs and yours. Maybe the kids could be in their car, so you'll have a quiet drive home.

I know it's a lot to ask since I'm just rejoining but could you all add my family to your prayers? My Mom was diagnosed with breast cancer on September 29th. She is having a lumpectomy this Friday and she will get the pathology reports on the 12th to determine if she needs radiation. Her doctor said it was caught very early and that it is a very treatable and curable...but we are all nervous and anxious. She asked him about going to Disney still and he said to GO and if she needs radiation, it can wait until we get back. I am nervous about her recovery from the surgery though since the biopsy was very rough on it. They hit a blood vessel and she had a hematoma which is why surgery was put off for several weeks.

I hope you are all doing well. I have been trying to keep up with some of your blogs during my absence but need to get you all listed back on my blog page again.

I see Kel is here now too - hi!
Hi Kristie! So glad to have you back. I don't think I ever took you off my blog roll. So sorry to hear about your mom, and of course, I will keep her in my prayers that it will all go well. Disney cruise will be a good distraction waiting to start the radiation. When are you leaving?

I was out of town all day yesterday. Left at 8:00 in the morning and got home at 7:00. A LONG DAY! Yep, I was playing cowboy all day again. Too long a drive and too much to do.

Don't have any idea what could have happened on the commenting Shelly. I'm still trying to catch up on mine from yesterday. Right now I think maybe I just need a nap!
After playing cowgirl all day yesterday, I would think you'd need a nap. Out in the hot sun, riding the range, roping stears, etc. takes a lot out of a gal!

It's been a busy day. Glad that it's almost over.

My boss remembered this morning that we hadn't gone to lunch last week for my birthday, so he suggested it today. We went to a great place that I had been to once before. The food is so delicious! Harvest Organic Grille | Houston's Organic Fresh Healthy Restaurant We all brought back half of what we ordered. I was stuffed. Going to take the extras home for dinner tonight and tomorrow night. We decided on one dessert to share and I wanted to order vanilla ice cream drizzled with chocolate on a bed of fresh raspberries. I opted not to have the chocolate cake in case we didn't eat it all, I didn't want to bring it back to the office either.

Maggie - I came up on the bus, and DD and I and the children will be travelling tomorrow - SIL and friend will pack the truck tomorrow night, then he will drive down after the truck leaves on Saturday in their other card, as he is stopping to clean the carpets when the place is empty. It's about 2 1/2 hours when DH and I drive it, but with children on board and potty stops etc, it will be longer......

Slight break in proceedings as we are waiting for more boxes and paper to continue packing the kitchen. I have just been taking down their curtains and replacing them with the rather junkie ones that were here when they moved in nearly 5 years ago, that belong to the landlord...

Hi all - long day, long week! I just looked at a card on my blog (duh, once I post I rarely double check) and saw the pumpkin card I made w/ the little boy? I forgot to color his shorts! LOL!! I colored it, didn't like it, redid the immie and on the 2nd one, didn't color his shorts in the same taupe as his shoes! Does it look that bad?? I can't believe I didn't catch that! Yeeeeesh!

Welcome back, Kristie! Prayers for your mom and for you as I know you must be terribly worried.

Maggie, that's wonderful about your GDG! I'm sure she will be wonderful and her auditions and tapings! They are quite a bit of work!

I have not seen any of the opera performances and my ticket is for tomorrow night - I cannot wait! DS was awarded the bobcat award and something for nature - lol. He has his first new school field trip tomorrow ~ he's super excited and the weather here has finally cooled off! YAY on the bday lunch with da boss!

Maxine, hope things calm down for you with the packing and unpacking ~ soon you'll be able to enjoy the quietness

Shel, yes indeed 23 minutes was worth it's wait in liquid gold - LOL! I told my dd if I'm ever sick, just pump that stuff into my veins and I'll be right as rain in no time *smile*

Lynn, what on earth ......... are you doing playing cowgirl? LOL! Hopefully if i'm out there this summer, you can show me some of your ranchin'

Hi to Barb, Jeanette, Kel, Darlene ....... eek, am I missing anyone? I'm soooooooo tired, forgive me

Good Morning Fellow Stamp Addicts!




Sheesh! Have you girls been to Kelly's blog??? She's getting pretty lazy with the coloring, don't you think? J/K, Kelly... I think his white shorts are fabulous! And I admire his mother's laundering abilities, since they are white as snow instead of grungy.

Yee Haw! Rope 'em, Lynn!

Kristie, thank you for the birthday wishes! And be assured I am praying for your mom - and will continue to. (((HUGS)))

Maggie, my two guys are taking me to Olive Garden. I love pasta. They neither one do. So it's a real treat!

Maxine, I hope the move/trip is uneventful. 2 1/2 hours in a car can be interesting when there are children involved.

Barb, it must have been a busy day yesterday - you were pretty quiet. I hope you had a great day!

Waving at Shelly and anyone else I've missed!
